Sharing Breastfeeding Photos

Do You Share Your Breastfeeding Photos?

A picture's worth a thousand words, but mama may have more than 1,000 words to say if her breastfeeding pictures are used inappropriately. The intimate act is one that many new families like to record for posterity — in fact, 57 percent of LilSugar readers have taken breastfeeding photos of themselves. It's what they do with them afterward that may be cause for concern.

We all know about the controversy surrounding breastfeeding pictures on Facebook, but with the popularity of photo-sharing sites like Instagram and Pinterest, there are new concerns about the use of photos that depict nursing babies. A new post on the site of Best For Babes — the nonprofit breastfeeding advocacy group — interviews a mom whose instructional breastfeeding video was stolen by pornographers and spliced in with sex-act scenes. To make matters worse, the filmmakers used both the mom's and baby's names in their "movies." It has taken her more than two years to have the videos removed from various sites.

Though this case is extreme, it certainly isn't the only one out there.
